Talking about the picture quality, it's pretty good. Some sharpness has been lost. The avi Cinepack copy would be the least processed. However it was converted to the wrong shape, too narrow. The aspect ratio is 1.25. TV shape should be 1.33 (4:3). Even that looks too narrow so maybe it was meant to be 1.37, the original film shape.
I don't see any Roy Rogers movie on this site that is not too narrow in shape.
These old prints tend to have the very start cut somewhat, likely to remove outdated logos, and you lose some of the start of important songs.

Roy Rogers Saves The Day. Doesn't He Always?
This late 1941 entry has Roy, now a famous radio star going home to help put a dam over the top but theft and other complications need some hard riding and shooting to straighten out along the way. Plenty of good songs too by the Sons Of The Pioneers also featuring Pat Brady and Sally Payne. It's a long chase from start to finish to be sure but it was a crowd pleaser for Roy Rogers fans. Look for a very young Gale Storm as well as Gabby Hayes in the cast of pros as well. Enjoyable. Good picture and sound.
